Silver Bells Money Holder #1 and a Process Video

This is project #3 from my Silver Bells Gift Card and Money Holder Workshop I did during a recent Ready Set Crop weekend retreat. This workshop features the Silver Bells collection from Close To My Heart.

 You will find a link to the downloadable PDF with the full directions for cutting, scoring, stamping, and assembling all 5 projects at the end of this post. 

To make Money Holder #1 you will first need to score the 7" x 7 1/2" piece of Toffee cardstock along the 7 1/2" side at 2 1/4" and then at 5 1/4". Fold along the score lines folding both inward.

Mat the first piece of patterned paper on a Mink cardstock piece and adhere this to the bottom panel. Using a 1 1/4" punch, create a notch in this panel that will be used for the pocket. Placing a strong adhesive tape on the back sides of this panel fold this up and adhere this to the middle panel. Make sure to leave a little "give" when adhering the pocket so the money will be able to slide in and out.

Adhere the sentiment piece to the inside top panel. Adhere the second piece of patterned paper to the remaining Mink cardstock piece and adhere this to the front top panel.

Adhere the piece of Zip Strip to the Charcoal piece for the "belly band". With the money holder closed wrap the "belly band" around from the back and adhere the ends together using a strong adhesive. It is important to make sure you leave a little "give" when adhering so the band will slip off and on easily. Adhere a stamped bell image to the band covering the seam.

I added some Platinum Stickles Glitter Glue to the stamped images to add a little bling to the holder.
